Hello, did anyone else see this lighthouse? Does anyone know what it it was called or who made it?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Clearly the lighthouse didn't work and they crashed into each other. Over and over and over and over. :lol:

It was to warn you off from the dangerous rocks. If you head straight for a lighthouse, you should expect to impact all sorts of hard objects.

My guess is it was called "Lighthouse".

Oh, I think I found the artist's statement.

My work explores the relationship between acquired synesthesia and multimedia experiences.

With influences as diverse as Wittgenstein and Frida Kahlo, new synergies are crafted from both explicit and implicit dialogues.

Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of meaning. What starts out as undefined soon becomes debased into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of failing and the dawn of a new beginning.

As shimmering phenomena become transformed through diligent and diverse practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the edges of our era.

Ah. And all this time I thought that the Y2K bug was the edge of our era.

Hello. One of my fellow bunnies found you and this. Thanks so much for posting the pic. Always makes me smile when there's more love and energy floating around. That is me in the pic. This was my brainchild, and I am designated as the artist, but there were many people involved and many did as much if not more than me in one way or the other. I guess I was the umbrella under which everything came to life :) Feel free to write back. Hope you're well, Drag'n'fly
